Carriage trials running in Sidney

Black Beauty Line to iron out details of running horse-drawn carriages in Sidney

Black Beauty Line is beginning trials of their horse-drawn carriages in Sidney after Sidney Council approved their request to run the carriages in the town earlier this month.

Residents in the Town of Sidney may have heard the clip-clop of hooves on Sidney’s streets last week after Black Beauty Line began their trials running horse-drawn carriages in the town.

In the summer, the local company applied to the town to be able to run the carriages and council approved the bylaw amendments required to do so.

Over the fall and into the winter, Black Beauty Line will run trials in Sidney to examine how the outfit will work in the town with hopes that next summer they could run on a regular basis.

No one has actively run horse-drawn carriages in Sidney for years. Currently, Rebecca Spray and Robert Taylor, Black Beauty Line co-owners, have made arrangements with the Mary Winspear centre to allow them to use their rear parking lot for loading and unloading during the trial run. The staging area for the carriages in directly in front of the Sidney Waterfront Inn and Suites.
